Easter Week

Two Chekhov stories—”The Student,” and “On Easter Eve”—in new translation—courtesty of Michael Henry Heim. These stories are two favorites of mine—and I even read somewhere that “The Student” was Chekhov’s own favorite. It’s a spectacular update on the standard Constance Garnett translations. Handprinted on a Vandercook Universal I from mint Dante types. The paper was smuggled in from Germany.

The stories are flanked by Barry Moser’s dark engravings. Published in two editions, both bound by Sarah Creighton.
